Hungry to collaborate with fellow entrepreneurs, Remi started her own hospitality consulting practice. She holds a degree from Cornell University's School of Hotel Administration specializing in Hospitality and Beverage Management.


Remi grew up in Los Angeles, California and was immediately immersed in the hospitality industry. Her grandfather co-founded Napa Valley winery, Rutherford Hill, and was a wine explorer and educator who uncovered the stories of wine makers through the LA Times and book publications such as the "Treasury of American Wines". Her mother continues this legacy as a Wine Consultant, crafting wine lists and customizing private cellars. Her grandmother was a brilliant cook, transforming her Italian and Egyptian roots into thoughtful dishes that brought people together from around the world. 


Remi believes sharing a meal has the ability to break down cultural barriers, and connect people globally. Similarly, wine has the power to ground us, to taste the terroir of cultures from centuries ago. To Remi, growing a successful business is about capturing the art of hospitality and sharing it with the world through meaningful storytelling.
